He also looked around damaged centres for the elderly, and he offered up supplies and a 125,000 pound cheque on behalf of the Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation to continue the clean-up effort.

Chan, who shared photos of the trip on his website, said, "I grew up poor and struggled, and now I have enough money to share with the needy."
